Subject: [SWFLBirdline] unknown birds
I am new to the group and have posted pics of several birds I have
not been able to i.d. in the photo section under unknown birds. I
have also included pics of other animals that come into the same
area of the yard. If you notice all the pics are on a bougainvilia
bush that I have placed millet for the birds to feed and attract the
birds. Included are pics of the American Painted Buntings which have
been comming in for the forth year in a row. There are three pairs
and an aditional five females as well. They always come in within
three days of Oct 1st. and leave at the end of May. Hope you enjoy
and any help to i.d. the other birds would be great.
I have posted in the photo section under unknown, two birds I cannot i.d.
They are the last four pics. The one with the blue, it's breast is a muddled
blue also. I am located in Ft Laud. Fl. These birds are coming in and
feeding with painted buntings. Are these young painted buntings? Is the blue
one a first year Indigo bunting? The color of the birds in the pics is a
correct color. I will post much better pics in the coming days.

- I have posted in the photo section three much better pics of the fm
painted bunting and what I think to be a first year male indigo
bunting. They are the last three pics. The blue apears to be the
color of a robins egg, not indigo.
- In the photo section under unknown birds there are three new photoes
of birds I can't I.D. They are the last three photoes #7151, #7158
and #7159. The larger bird comes in around three p.m. and feeds and
fly's up until I leave the area around eleven p.m. Names of these
birds would be appreciated and wether they are male or female or
I have posted pics of two birds in the photoes section I cannot i.d.
Can someone help me. These birds came in to my feeding area together.
They are half the size of the American house sparrow. They do not have
conical bills but a more pointed bill. I could aproach to within six
feet of these birds but at that time I didn't have the camera with me.
The lighter colored bird was feeding on millet in the bougainvillia.
These birds have been in the area for two days. If they stay I will
set up a blind and get much better pics.
Go to photoes,click on all albams, go to unknown birds and the last
five pics are of the two birds.
